    Best screen protector kit?

    Same... Even with their alignment tool, I was prepared to deal with fixing things post-install but it was perfect. For me there is a slight loss of sharpness but the lack of glare, reduced fingerprint visibility and smooth touch make it one of my favorite accessories (I really like the MagBak...

    Ok based on Sunday's weather, I'm glad I didn't wash the car on Friday. I did wash it today though. Here are those "soft paint" pictures I said I would post earlier. Reposting the video as well to refresh the "how this happened".

    Yah when I backed into that spot which was an end spot (so only one side at risk) no one was in that "orange Ford" spot. As they pulled in I did get the plates on the front sentry cam but I haven't pursued it. I was seething that day, primarily at the orange truck driver, but as I reviewed the...

    After the last few rainy days the car needs to be washed to accurately illustrate the damage this seemingly minor incident caused... but for now here is my disappointing Tesla paint experience.

    Just checked, the one I have is still in the unopened box. I had bought a second setup to have in the car (I use the one that came with the car as my home EVSE. No need for the wall connector). Unfortunately they dropped the prices a little over a month after I bought this setup.

    I bought a complete extra mobile kit with the 14-50. If you're willing to buy mine, I'll just order one to replace it when they're in stock. That said, as DrGriz said, they've had them in stock at the SC, that is where I got my extra. DM me.

    I imagine hail that size would do quite a number on the Tesla hood, regardless of PPF. Sorry to hear about your truck ☹️, that sucks.

    Correct, glove box USB is the only data port, which is the where the Tesla supplied USB stick goes. This is one option, you lose the dash cam/sentry functionality though. Correct, if your music collection is static you could get away with this method but you may want to replace the drive with...

    I've seen a lot of PPF talk recently... I went with the Suntek vs the XPEL and was primarily concerned with the leading edge but ended up getting the front "clip" (front bumper, hood, fenders to the doors, A-pillars, and mirrors) done as well as the rocker panels. They had to do the rear door...

    Hey @jstepy... Sorry for the late reply, I've been out of town for the past week+. Back in November (I think) Tesla released a communication that new 3/Y center console USB, from that point going forward, would be power-only. So no data transmission. I'm fairly certain this was related to...

    And of course, I knew I'd forget something. A member on this forum makes these and sells them via ETSY. Rear Seatbelt guides

    Unfortunately no, it's a $325 add-on now. Also no FOB unless you buy one. If only I had Amazon referral links :-).

    welcome @jstepy, though given your tenure maybe it's more appropriate to say "welcome back". I got the CCS1 adapter from Harimo's proxy service, received it last week and did a quick test down at the EA charger here in Boise, works well and is official Telsa hardware. As for accessories/mods...

    Martian wheels?

    I realize this isn't the data you're looking for but just in case it indicates when the backlog started: When I ordered my MW05's, the page indicated that there was a several month delay but they showed up a week later, much to my surprise and almost 2 months before I even got my car. Ordered...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    May 8 (Sunday night): Placed order and paid (legacy method using Tesla Acct) May 9 (2AM): Tesla email confirming order May 12: DHL Shipment Confirmation May 16: Delivered (DHL) Tested it last night. Unfortunately the EA 350kW handles seemed to be borked, so had to move to a 150kW. Staring SOC...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Oh and once you have the order confirmation email from Tesla, change your password and generate a new batch of backup codes/tokens. Maybe overkill, but why risk it.
  20. SirSycho

    CCS Adapter - ?

    I know this may seem obvious but I'll mention it anyway. For those of you that have ordered, paid and have not yet seen the email from Tesla Korea with the invoice: Do you have multi-factor authentication (MFA) enabled on your Tesla account? Did you supply your account username/password AND...

    In case anyone was interested. I took the car in on Tuesday, the gave me a 2017 Model S loaner. They said they wouldn't need the car overnight and it would be ready same day. They called a little after noon to say it was done. They ended up replacing "Oil Pump - Rear Drive Unit" all under...

    Service said I can drive the car but to keep it below 65mph. They moved my service appt to Tuesday morning (earliest the app would allow was Thursday). Right after I got home, I got prompted to update to 2022.12.3.2 which seemed to make the warning to away, but I’m not sure that makes me...

    Mine dropped to a ~10 day window and I was a couple days into that timeframe before I got a VIN and my first delivery date was outside of that initial 10 days (I was disappointed at the time but having a hard date was nice). They called me a few days later and asked if I wanted to pick it up a...

    Let us know what you hear back. I have a friend with a M3 due in May-June and he's starting to shop 3rd party options. I would be surprised if they made that policy retroactive. When you ordered your car it said it came with an EVSE. Seems like it should be the same policy that applied when...

    Hey Guys, Still loving the car. I decided to do my own ceramic glass coating, since a lot of the car is glass, last weekend to help make it easier to clean and make the water fly off without having to use the wipers. So far so good, supposed to be good for 2+ years. I'm trying to steer clear...

    Aftermarket Tow hitch-bay area

    If you're willing to put in a little sweat equity or maybe enlist a handy friend help, TorkLift's EcoHitch option is great. I installed mine and was able to keep the aluminum crash bar (the Curt and Uhaul ones don't appear to allow for that). $314 is a sweet deal versus the Tesla OEM option...

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    Installed my TPARTS module last night, data now works! I have not tested a hub yet, I returned the one I ordered back in October/November when I was waiting for my car (after hearing about the port issue). Hub compatibility would be nice but I'm happy.

    Bad XPEL Installation?

    Sounds like they're skirting responsibility and hoping you go away after 30 days. How did you pay? If by credit card, you may want to alert your bank to put a hold on that charge or start a dispute.
  31. SirSycho

    Bad XPEL Installation?

    He said they did the front clip, which is not a whole car wrap... $3K sounds pretty spendy for just the front clip. Did they do the rocker panels as well? Oh they did tint as well, I missed that. Depending on how much tint they did, maybe the front clip was cheaper than I've seen :)

    2022.8.2

    False alarm... I'm pretty sure it used to be a tab in "Theater" but it is its own app now in the ellipsis (...) menu.

    2022.8.2

    I just did the update yesterday and this morning I no longer see the "Browser" in Theater. I have rebooted the computer a couple times and no change. Anyone who upgraded to 2022.8.2, do you still have the browser?

    Tesla OEM bike racks vs Thule?

    +1 for the 1UP racks. I owned a dual which I had for 10+ years and gave to a family member. Now I have the 2" Heavy Duty Single and it pretty much stays on the car 9 months of the year. I have an add-on if someone wants to tag along. Beautifully engineered and very secure, the parts that wear...

    Maybe not as fast, but I did my plate transfer online and they mailed me the registration. Totally worth not having to go to the DMV.:)

    Congrats jboles! My MYLR which I picked up one month ago today came with the PPF scallops on the rear doors (in front of the rear tires). It also came with the the front mud flaps.
  38. SirSycho

    Idaho Waiting Room

    This is my dilemma. Ultimately, the reason I got it done was to protect the paint, but the reason I paid someone else to do it was to hopefully have it done by a professional and damn near perfect. For almost $2K, I was hoping for more. Do you mind sharing what product you got and how much it...

    I'm been "solar-curious" since I got my Nissan Leaf, about 8 years back. I was so close to just buying the panels and calling in some favors. Probably for the best that I held off, since we ended up moving to the other end of town. It's always been at the back of my mind though, and if this...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    Update since my last post: I got PPF for the full front bumper, hood, front quarter panels, A pillars, mirrors, rocker panels and patches behind the rear wheels. I'm not thrilled with the job, but wasn't willing to live without the car for any longer than the 3 days they had it. We'll see how...

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    I’ll try one more time. What is it about the module that you sell which is specific to AMD vs. Intel? Presumably both are x86-64 architectures. I’m pretty sure there isn’t an ARM Ryzen out there, someone please correct me if I’m mistaken.
  42. SirSycho

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    I think the original question is a fair one... it's just a USB chipset for an x86_64 architecture. Only reason I can think of would maybe be a connector switch from mini-usb to some other interface, but it seems odd that Tesla would even bother switching the cable harness for something they were...

    Would you be willing to share what C&R charged you? I have an electrician friend who helped me do mine but he moved to Corvallis and I’m thinking of maybe adding a second.

    Still lovin' it. I sold my Bolt back to Chevy in October so I've been missing the EV life for the last few months. I wish it would get warm enough to wash the damn thing though, anything above freezing that doesn't leave me with an ice rink for a driveway will work. I just picked up a 1TB SSD...

    Idaho Waiting Room

    I am headed in next week to get the front half (full front, hood, front quarter panels, A pillars, and rockers) done. The ppf rear scallops on the doors was already in place when I picked it up. I decided to go with Suntek, and am hoping that Tint World does a good job. I went and looked at...

    While this is true, their own presentations are not exactly the picture of transparency. On the earnings calls they are held to a higher standard, which is why I think people hope for more concrete information there.
  47. SirSycho

    Idaho Waiting Room

    Agreed, disappointing about the lack of detail and/or transparency. After my ordering experience I question whether or not they even have a fully fleshed out plan. Oh well, on the plus side, demand is still high which means resale should be good for a while (hopefully). Update on my ride: I got...

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    I picked up my MYLR on Friday and it charges my iPhone 12 Pro Max with an Apple leather case on it. I test drove a lot of different M3 and MY vehicles in the months long wait and had varying success with the wireless chargers and my phone. Towards the end of the wait, they were getting more and...

    Love the car. I actually had my first Tesla Mobile Service experience today, they came to install my HomeLink. That was an awesome experience btw, the guy was super knowledgeable and helpful, wanted me to stick around and watch him tear apart the frunk. He asked if I had any questions or other...

    My MYLR did indeed come with all-season tires. Continental ProContact RX on all 4 corners. They don't rate the greatest for treadwear but that aligns with pretty much every new car I've ever purchased. I guess we'll see how these fare after the first year. Oh and the soonest the PPF guys could...
